What is Null Space Labs?

We are a place for people who do interesting things with tech; we offer wifi, coworking space, an electronics and hardware lab with soldering stations and rework equipment, a small wet lab, simple wood and metal working tools, public computers, and, most of all, a creative environment that’s open to visitors.

Fields of interest of people you might find at the lab include DIY electronics, hardware hacking, lock picking, game development, entrepreneurship, security, graphics programming, AI, photography, privacy and civil rights, etc.

The group that operates Null Space Labs sees itself solely as an infrastructure provider and exerts little influence over projects and events carried out at the lab. We are trying to be financially independent, and finance our operations through membership fees.

The space was opened in May 2010. Also, we are the only hackerspace that is not saving the world.

 

Where is Null Space Labs?

Null Space Labs is located in downtown Los Angeles on the third floor at 1015 South Main Street at the Olympic blvd intersection. Free street parking is ONLY available on Broadway south of Olympic until the city installs parking signage. The parking lot south of Olympic on Main across the street for the NSL build WILL TOW YOU IF YOU HAVE NO STUB ON YOUR CAR NOW. The attendant for this lot is onsite till 7PM daily, so get to this lot BEFORE 7PM if you want to park there. This lot costs $5 during the day and is $3 after 4PM. There is also a Joe’s parking lot north of Olympic between Broadway and Main, but they sometimes only allow parking for the club there, so just play it cool.  There are also several parking lots nearby with prices ranging from $5 to $20. Our private parking lot is still under construction following a city error. Please refer to our handy, easy to read parking map below to decode the current parking ACLs in place:

Once you have arrived, you will walk around the building, following the chain link fence to the door (on the side of the building facing Broadway).  There you will find an intercom where we can buzz you in.  Follow the stairs until they dead-end into a door and you have reached us.

When can I visit Null Space Labs?

At NSL we have an “Open Door (within reason)” policy.  Generally speaking, we always welcome visitors.  However, you can’t always be certain when we will be there.  That is why we suggest that new visitors attend one of our Tuesday night meetings, as it is a guarantee that you can meet other members and get a feel for things.

On this website you will see a sign that says that we are Open or Closed.  This is reading from a twitter feed that is updated via a button near the front door of NSL.  This is your best bet for quickly knowing if we are open.  Having said that, it is always a good idea to hop into the IRC channel (Efnet #NSL) and do a sanity check.  You never know how many people are at the space or how soon they will be leaving if you don’t ask!

You can also give us a call when you are nearby to verify someone is still there using our new phone number: (424)-234-NSL0
